Mumbai: He may not be playing, but in the billion-plus country he continues to be the God. The multiplex here was reverberating with 'Sachin-Sachin' slogans. He was not there though, then why were people shouting for him in a hall.
Well, Sachin Tendulkar was about to reach here for releasing the trailer of "Sachin: A Billion Dreams". The claps, when he entered in a semi-formal attire, reminded one of the time when he used to enter the stadium to bat.
The iconic cricketer said that though a private person, he has now learnt how to share certain things of his life as his fans want to know more about him.
The forthcoming film "Sachin: A Billion Dreams" unveils a "different" side of his personality.
At the trailer launch, he said: "Yes, I am a private person but learnt to share insight of my life for my fans. They are curious to know. So, in this film I tried to share information about me with my fans by finding a middle path where I am comfortable to share and they also get to know about me."
The trailer launch took place in the presence of Tendulkar alongside the film's director James Erskine, producer Ravi Bhagchandka and Shrikant Bhasi of Carnival Pictures.
The trailer shows his life's journey and how he considers cricket as his religion.
Sharing an anecdote from his childhood, he said: "I think I was as little as four years old when we all went to watch a film called 'Maa'. We were travelling by bus. When the bus conductor asked 'Kaunsa ticket chahiye?' (Which ticket do you want?) Instead of taking the station's name, I said 'Maa' film ka ticket chahiye (I want ticket of 'Maa' film)".
The film is slated to release on May 26.
